Got A Bad Boss? Work That Boss To Get What You Want At Work

About The Book

“Got A Bad Boss?” is for the legions of unhappy employees who have a Bad Boss--those bosses who inflict misery and abuse on too many employees who aren't in a position to quit. It's a practical step-by-step guide to making yourself valuable to a Bad Boss instead of cringing, screaming, or going crazy; to take control of your job and your career even if your Bad Boss is a raving lunatic, narcissist or just plain incompetent. (Check out the book trailer here.) How? By discovering your Bad Boss's secret desire and secret fear--which then gives YOU the secret to "working” your boss to get what you want at work. Not only that, but you’ve got strengths--work strengths embedded within your Employee Type--that you can use to make yourself valuable, to leverage your way to success no matter how bad your Bad Boss is. That’s what “Got A Bad Boss?” gives you: strategies and techniques specific to working each type of Bad Boss, from Finger Pointer Boss to Incompetent Boss to Egomaniacal Boss and more--using your particular work-strengths--whether you’re an Ambitious Employee, Hyper Sensitive, Pleaser or Impatient as all heck.
